It's a campaign issue. He's trying to stay out of the campaign. It's also a potential impeachment issue and that's business for Congress and one that former pres's should definitely steer clear of.




Please.

Obama’s never exactly been what you’d call reticent about giving an opinion on anything, whether he was asked for one or not.

Obama clearly doesn’t like Biden - he used him in 2008 for his “folksy blue collar” appeal to white working class voters in the Rust Belt. 



You nailed it.



Boy, Obama and Trudeau. I can only think of two more pathetic duos than that, and that would be either Obama/Clinton or Obama/Merkel.

He's kept his mouth shut about OMB, right?

re: Why is Obama acting like this?
My best guess is that Obama is being careful not to tarnish his legacy by backing a loser. I am not necessarily saying Biden will lose, but if Obama backs Biden and he then loses, it will reflect poorly on him, much as it did when Hillary Clinton was defeated by Donald Trump. If you think of it in these terms, it makes perfect sense for Obama not to endorse any candidate at this time.

I think that's fair. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama had a preference for another nominee, but I don't think you can read that simply from his staying out of the campaign.

re: Why is Obama acting like this?

It's the norm for a former president to let the primary process play out before endorsing the nominee.

e.g. it wasn't until May 1988 that Reagan finally endorsed G.H.W. Bush. ("I'm going to work as hard as I can to make Vice President George Bush the next president of the United States").


Don't bring facts like this to the conversation. I'll rather believe he's staying out of the process because he doesn't like Biden.

Too late for that. Democrats suffered historic losses at the state and federal congressional levels during his presidency.

When the time comes Obama will give us a lecture on who we need to vote for. I miss his lectures about how I should live and think.

Biden was used as a means to an end. To become POTUS, he had to drag Biden along. And he hated every minute of it.

This. It's about to get real ugly for officials in the Obama administration. Barack wants no part of it. Biden and his son are about to go down, and may just take Barack with him.

Supposedly, it got back to Barry that Crazy Joe used racial slurs to refer to him.

Because no matter what Biden isn’t going to be the nominee and Obama knows it.
